Watercolour paints/brushes and watercolour paper
I have used Jackman's Art Materials in the above geranium sample
The watercolours are a relatively new brand which are handmade in the UK which I have found to be of a very good quality.
The Professional handmade watercolours are available in lots of shades and in 14ml tubes, 5gm pots and 1/2 pans.
I like to work from a palette of full pans so I tend to fill them up from pots or tubes.
My basic watercolour palette is:
Phthalo blue (green shade)(similar to Winsor blue GS)
French Ultramarine blue
Scarlet Lake which is a strong warm orangey red
Pyrrole red which is slightly cooler
Cobalt yellow which is a cool yellow similar to Cadmium yellow pale
Azo yellow which is slightly warmer and similar to Transparent yellow
Diarylide yellow, a warm golden yellow, similar to Cadmium yellow
Phthalo green similar to Viridian green
Brushes are available in either sable or synthetic.
The Extra fine Golden synthetic(Gold sable) Round professional brush is available in several sizes.
A size 8 and 10 are useful sizes
and if you prefer a sable the Pure Red sable Professional watercolour brush is good too.
